    Round Results & Standings

    What a start to the 2013 FSR Fantasy League! We have 3 winners! 2012 FSR Fantasy League Champion Ondrej Kuncman, from Czech Republic, started his title defense by winning the opening round with his Precision team. Finland's Mikko Puumalainen, 3rd in 2012, started the season in the same way he ended it, taking his second round victory in a row with his Gamepad Racing. Joining them, Switzerland's Franz Schnyder became a first-time round winner with his SG Pilatus team. They all scored 77 points, with the tie maintained after the tie-breaker criteria were applied.

    All three winners opted for the podium-finishing duo of Ivar Kalamees and Morgan Morand for their Team A. However, things got more interesting when analysing their Team B choices. While Kuncman and Puumalainen picked Patrick De Wit and Moises Rondon, who together scored 19 points, Franz Schnyder went for Jernej Simoncic and Blair Disley. As the former scored 21 points, Schnyder would have been the round's lone winner. However, Blair Disley's post-race penalty and score of -2 allowed Kuncman and Puumalainen to keep him company!

    With only one round contested, the winning trio are obviously at the top of the standings with 77 points, and are in pole position to start the battle for the Thrustmaster Y-250C Gaming Headset the champion will win. Ondrej Kuncman and Franz Schnyder are the first contenders for another Thrustmaster Y-250C Gaming Headset that will be drawn among all round winners at the end of the season. Mikko Puumalainen is not elegible for prizes due to holding the FSR World Championship Director position.

    Driver Results & Costs

    Repeating his Monaco score of a year ago, poleman and race winner Bono Huis was Monte Carlo's top scorer with 44 points. 3rd-place finisher Morgan Morand was the 2nd top scorer with 33 points, thanks to his fastest lap and winning 6 places on his grid slot. Race runner-up Ivar Kalamees was next with 25 points.

    Drivers' market costs were updated. Zoltan Csuti (+1400$), Jernej Simoncic (+800$), Ivar Kalamees (+600$) and Moises Rondon (+600$) were the drivers who climbed the costs ladder the most. Remember that the drivers that you already have on your team will continue to cost you what they did when you included them on your lineup.

    Official Mini-Leagues

    With the round-winning trio participating in one Official Mini-League each, they all took victories in the Official Mini-Leagues too!
    • Drivers Challenge: Franz Schnyder won this Mini-League's round with 77 points, with Dian Kostadinov 2nd (72 points) and Giuseppe Marconi in 3rd place (67 points).
    • Team Managers Challenge: Ondrej Kuncman, who participates as Precision Motorsports' Team Manager, took this Mini-League's round home with 77 points, followed by David Dominguez (Twister-Racing, 67 points) and Javier Alvarez (Positive SimRacing, 65 points).
    • Administrators Challenge: Also with 77 points, Mikko Puumalainen took this Mini-League's round, as WC Race Director. David Dominguez was 2nd with 67 points while the other two Race Directors, Eduard Mallorqui and John-Eric Saxen, were tied in 56 points.
